Yeah, this seems a lot more like "50 most memorable shoes" than "50 greatest"

This list does suck. Complex website is annoying.

Definitely agree with half cabs as the top pick. Reynolds 1 and Emerica MJ 1 should prlly be ranked higher, as everyone was wearing those for about 5 years straight.

Bored at work, so I listed down all the shoes I have owned from the list:

fallen rival (given to me), ipath cats, nike bruin, osiris d3 (grade nine, first day of school swag), es scheme, chuck taylor, dc lynx, nike prod, nike blazer, es accel, nike dunk, koston 1s, old school, sk8 hi, era and half cabs. Brought back some memories. The scrazy thing is that this probably is an insanely small fraction of the shoes I have destroyed skating in over the years.

not a bad list imo. my favorite out of all those shoes is probably the KCK's. god, those shoes are perfect. Duffs needs to reissue them while they're still in business.

and were the Vans Carroll's not on there? that one should've been there instead of some of those Circas or Fallens.

they also had Muska's Supra and Es pro shoes, but i really wanted to see this one on there



i want those, some KCK's and some damn airwalks now.

see what you've done? fuck you, marc ecko

(and we all knew the half-cabs were gonna be #1. anything else would be pretty blasphemous)

those kck's were really nice looking, but rock hard for the first 2 months.

duffs stramboli were a cool 90s shoes.
